Biopic of Irish leader and freedom fighter Michael Collins (Liam Neeson).

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - A couple of hangings, blood splattered corpses and shrouds in a morgue, men screaming while on fire; explosions, fires, a few war scenes. A few scuffles, a few beatings which sometimes result in bloody faces, some people shot in a firing range with jerking bodies and spurting blood. Bloody, post-battle wounds on some bodies, many people are shot (sometimes the same person is shot multiple times) and sometimes shot at close range. Sometimes these shootings result in blood and sometimes the blood spurts and gushes (especially one time when the back of a man's head explodes in gouts of blood and brain matter). More shoot-outs and ambushes. Chases.

LANGUAGE 8 - 25+ F-words, a couple of anatomical references, a few scatological references and mild obscenities.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
